In ISRAMAN Garmin swim start line we will give the race favorites competing in the elite category a few meters advantage in front of the line.
In order to be a part of the elite category you must meet at least one of the following criteria:
|Overall rankings in an olympic distance triathlon or longer (in the 24 month before race day) with a result not greater than 5% more than the overall winner's time.||Top 1% in races with at least 300 male athletes.||Top 3% in races with at least 80 female athletes.|
|Overall rankings in ISRAMAN Eilat / North (in the 24 month before race day)||1-5||1-3|
|Exceptional result in the past||According to the decision of the organizers|
Those who met at least one of these criteria, were asked to mention it in the registration form. Prize money will be given only to the first 3 in the elite category, even if an age group athlete finishes before them. Elite athlete will not be able to win his age group category.
The list of the Pro wave for 2017 ISRAMAN Garmin will be published 2 weeks before the event
